Abramson: They have tried to sweep in journalists. It's almost the one year anniversary exactly that your colleague James Rosen had his record secretly looked at by the government in a leak investigation. These are really have put a freeze and have interrupted the normal flow of journalists who want to cover Washington and national security especially. Van Susteren: Is it profoundly different though than the other administrations? Abramson: It’s profoundly different. Before these cases, these eight cases in all of history there have been fewer than half of those. And so it is different.

Abramson: you know, in certain ways they have declassified some documents. They have done some things that weigh on the side of transparency. But I just think that these criminal cases, these criminal leak investigations outweigh all of the good that they have done and all of the efforts they have made to try to be transparent. You said in the lead into the show, I'm not alone in pointing out how closed and difficult this administration is for reporters. Everyone from Bob Schieffer to Lynn Downy, who was the top Editor at the Washington Post have commented on how secretive this White House is. Van Susteren: You have now just recently 38 journalist organizations protesting in a letter. You have the White House photographers who have been objecting because they don't have access.
